Dietary choices by four captive slender lorises (Loris tardigradus) when presented with various insect life stages.
(Zoo Biol, 2011-03)
The slender loris (Loris tardigradus) is a rare, nocturnal prosimian found only in the tropical rainforest of southern India and Sri Lanka. Little is known about their diet, though it is assumed that insects comprise a majority ...
Are we looking for loads in all the right places? New research directions for studying the masticatory apparatus of New World monkeys.
(Anat Rec (Hoboken), 2011-12)
New World monkeys display a wide range of masticatory apparatus morphologies related to their diverse diets and feeding strategies. While primatologists have completed many studies of the platyrrhine masticatory apparatus, ...
A comparison of activity patterns for captive Propithecus tattersalli and Propithecus coquereli.
